In this day-long, all-inclusive writing intensive with coach Alissa Johnson, you'll experience the relief that comes from getting clear about what you're writing and how you want to write it. If you have a book idea you're struggling to start, a work-in-progress that has stalled out, or feel overwhelmed by your book, keep reading!

You want to see the pages grow, but how?
With the Book Writer's Personal Retreat, you'll make sense of the questions and unknowns that keep you from writing—and create some shifts in the way you approach writing so it feels easier.

You'll also take all those ideas in your mind and get organized so you can create a story map or book map. A sense of clarity and knowing where you're headed go a long way when it comes to the act of writing!

We'll also make sure you know how to take these new tools and apply them to  your writing at home, so you can keep the momentum going. And The best part? You'll spend time in the mountains. There's nothing better than getting away from daily distractions and reconnecting with nature to feel inspired and back in the flow.

In your VIP day (because that's what it is—-a day just for you), you will: 

 Summer in my neck of the woods: Inspiration abounds!

— Laurie, CA

“After our first phone conversation I knew that I had chosen the right person to help me go forward on my book. I had shelved the work on it for about a year and after talking to Alissa for just an hour... I got right back to work, did some revision and hammered out what I really wanted to work with."

— Melissa, CO
